Question about 1997 Porsche 911
SOURCE: electronic immobilizer
The immobilizer isn't recognizing your key. You need to reprogram your keys to your car. Unless you know the SKC and know someone with VAG-COM you are going to have to go to the dealer.
Did you try all the different keys you have for the car? If you are lucky only one key is bad and you can drive to the dealer and get the bad key reprogrammed or buy a new key and have them program it to you car. Otherwise, you are going to have to get towed.
If it is just one key, make sure you bring all the keys to the dealer so they can do the reprogramming correctly.
Was any work being done on your car to cause this?

This depends on what model of car stereo is installed.
Ususally if there is any unlock code needed, this is printed into a sticker provided with car documentation, or into the car user manual.
Checking on the Internet I have found no unlocking procedure for Mazda rx 8 , this usually means that there is no unlocking code.
The best thing to do to ensure that your car stereo does not need any unlock code is giving a quick call to your local mazda dealer, they can check in their database and find out if the code is needed.
If the code is needed and you lost it , you will need to give the car stereo model number, printed on the service tag at the back of the stereo, to a car radio unlock service, this costs about $10.
If your stereo does not require a code, it will just restart.
Call a local mazda car dealer and enquire about the car stereo if you disconnect the battery.

There is a chip in the key on the newer cars. The dealer should be able to send your information to Hyundai and order a new key. Pricey. Check with another dealer.

If there is a blinking car icon with an "X" over it. This icon means the Immobilizer has been activated and hence won't allow the car to start. It could be due to a bad SCU, Start Control Unit. The SCU is actually the ignition switch on these cars.
Most of the time it's triggered by the anti-theft system..You can try this trick i learned that the dealers won't tell you...try locking and unlocking of the doors five times with the remote to reset the immobilizer and see if this helps.
Good luck..i hope this helps...please take a minute to rate me a fixya.
